The Garage Sale Trail is back!

Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s biggest weekend of garage sales. Council is hosting a free event as part of this initiative.

Catherine Nestor has been selling her secondhand goods at the City of Burnside council sale for 3 years now. This October will mark her 4 year anniversary!

We spoke with Catherine to see what keeps bringing her back to the sale day at Glenunga Hub. “The Garage Sale Trail is a fun community event, where lots of buyers and sellers get together for a fun day to unearth bargains,” she says. The Glenunga Hub sale is part of the bigger Garage Sale Trail initiative, which is a nationwide weekend of garage sales aiming to re-use and rehome. “Burnside Council opens up the fantastic Glenunga Hub to hold this event,” says Catherine.

Catherine told us she enjoys the Council event and atmosphere at the Hub as it is an ideal facility for this type of event. “The Hub is ideally suited to such a big sales event and provides a great covered space for buyers and sellers to get together, browse and have a chat with coffee, food and a range of free family activities! There’s also lots of parking and easy access.”

This year, she will be selling clothes, books, DVDs and kitchenware. You will be able to see all of the stalls and their wares on the Garage Sale Trail website (click and scroll down).

We just had to ask Catherine what the most interesting item she has sold at the Council sale. “Old calendars with travel pictures and a football club scarf from an unpopular interstate team!”

The ‘City of Burnside Community Day – Reduce, Re-use, Resell’ is next month on Saturday 19 October from 9 am – 1 pm at Glenunga Hub. Catherine will be there along with 23 other City of Burnside resident stallholders. Be sure to say hi!

Alternatively, be sure to pop in and pick up a bargain! There will be many free activities for the children and hot coffee and treats for sale from the Village Green café.

We hope to see you there.
